Online catalog search strategies

You may search the online catalog typing a: keyword, author, title, or subject.

  • To search by keyword, type in your phrase
  • To search by author, type last name in first
  • To search by the title of the work, type the exact title of the work
  • To search by subject, use Library of Congress Subject Headings (at Reference Desk)

Once you have located materials, you will need to write down the call number and location to retrieve item from the stacks. Remember to check the "Status" column before you go to the shelf.
